Casa Guidi Windows - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

£29.99

Product description

Undated, published circa 1926 by Giulio Giannini & Figlio, Florence, Italy. In English, illustrated with drawings by Giulio Giannini Jr. and includes a prefatory note by William A Sim.

First published in 1851, Casa Guidi Windows, is about Florence, Elizabeth Barrett Browning's adopted home. An impressionistic and thoroughly a typical landmark in the Romantic canon, written in two parts, separated by several years. Beginning with the memory of a singing child and a lush description of Florence's beauty, the first part explores the air of optimism that permeates both the city and the narrator. By the second, disillusionment is rife: Florence has become the scene of demonstrations and broken political promises.

This is a high quality publication, with a decorative wood-cut print design on the cover. In excellent condition, however, unfortunately the cover has fading on the spine and towards the spine on the front and back covers. There is an embossed imprint stating 'Library of Elizabeth Cobb' on one of the front pages.
